The varsity baseball team took advantage of the warm weather and stayed hot against the Pershing County High School Mustangs Saturday, March 20.

Sophomore Bryan Noble had a strong outing on the mound as he pitched no-hit baseball into the sixth inning. He also helped himself at the plate going 3-4 with 2 RBIs and two stolen bases as Lowry won 9-1.

“Bryan had a day that most people dream of. He was great on the mound and at the plate,” said coach Ron Espinola.

In the start of the second inning, Bryan Noble started off the inning with a single. Gus Duncan got walked to move Noble to second base. Duncan and Noble both advanced an extra base on a wild pitch. David Eastman hit an RBI single to score Noble. Mitch Pollock was next to bat and hit a two-RBI single which scored Duncan and Eastman. Lowry’s defense had a three-up three-down inning which brought the score to 4-0.

Terrell Messerly hit a double to left field that started the fourth inning. Eastman brought Messerly home with an RBI single. Pollock drove Eastman home by hitting an RBI single to right field. Later in the inning, Dusty Kraft advanced to first with a walk then stole second. Jace Billingsley hit a sacrificed fly to right field which scored Pollock. Noble hit an RBI triple to score Kraft to finish the scoring for the Bucks.

“Overall, it was a solid effort by the whole team. Hopefully, we can carry this into league play,” said Espinola.

Lowry will be back in action March 26 when they travel to Dayton to open league play.
